Combining Brain-Computer Interfaces and Medical Simulators: Detecting Mental Workload to Adapt Medical Simulator Assistance
In this work we introduce the combined use of Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) and Medical Simulators. We propose to adapt medical simulator guides based on the mental activity measured by a BCI system. The aim of this system is to provide visual and haptic assistance only when the user’s brain activity reflects a high mental workload. This work paves the way to novel passive BCI applications such as medical training simulators based on passive BCI and “smart guides”.
